  • FIFPro World 11 Ozil overlooked as Matic makes midfield list

However, only three midfielders make the all-star side, along with a goalkeeper, four defenders and three attackers.

World champion France had eight players, one less than former holder Spain, in global players' association FIFPro's 55-name shortlist for its World XI of 2018 award. De Gea and Navas are on the list for the fourth time in a row while Buffon was named the No.1 goalkeeper previous year.

The shortlist is dominated by La Liga stars and the 15 names will find out if they have made the final XI at a ceremony in London on September 24.

Dejan Lovren, who reached both the World Cup final and Champions League final with country and club, is named amongst the defenders - with Virgil van Dijk also part of the 20 man defenders list. This time around, there was no place for Real Madrid's Gareth Bale, while Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Alexis Sanchez also missed the cut.

Mohamed Salah was nominated to the final list after presenting spectacular performance on both club and global level last season with Liverpool and the Egyptian national team.

In the previous five meeting with the Packers , the Bears failed to score more than 17 points four times while winning just once. Mack wasn't the only Bears defender to enjoy an exemplary half, but he was the Chicago player whose star shone the brightest.

Manchester United duo Paul Pogba and Nemanja Matic were included, as was Andres Iniesta, who left Barca for Vissel Kobe after the end of last season.

The FIFPro World 11 has been announced every year since 2005 and under Rafa Benitez Liverpool players were included in the three years from 2007 to 2009.

World Cup semifinalists England had three nominations in Tottenham Hotspur pair Harry Kane and Kieran Trippier as well as Manchester City's Kyle Walker.

Goalkeepers (5): Gianluigi Buffon (Italy/Paris Saint-Germain/Juventus FC), Thibaut Courtois (Belgium/Real Madrid CF/Chelsea FC), David De Gea (Spain/Manchester United FC), Keylor Navas (Costa Rica/Real Madrid CF), Marc-André ter Stegen (Germany/FC Barcelona).
